More...Make A Joyful Sound
This is where we left the painting process yesterday. A detailed sketch on a 24x30 inch, gallery wrapped, stretched canvas that, in my opinion and the opinion of other artists, was not working. Two strong focuses would be detracting to the viewer because each focus is fighting for attention. One suggestion from a fellow forum member was to turn this painting into a diptych. After thinking about it for a couple of months…I took a hand saw, unstapled the canvas on the dancers’ side and sawed the canvas in two. Here’s what I got…(up close shot).
I then laid in the sky and roughed in the background.
So much more to do. What did I get myself into?
Aloha...see you tomorrow.
